CAIRO - Leftist candidate Hamdeen Sabahy will file an appeal for Egypt's presidential election to be suspended because of alleged voting irregularities and a pending case over the right of former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq to stand, Sabahy's lawyer said on Saturday.

"We will present an appeal on behalf of candidate Hamdeen Sabahy ... to the presidential electoral committee, citing a series of irregularities ... that have affected the outcome of the first round," Essam El-Islamboly told Reuters.
